River Avon

Enjoy a 60 minute cruise on the beautiful River Avon through Stratford upon Avon. See all the riverside sights including the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church, Shakespeare’s burial place, while enjoying a tutored tasting of the craft gins produced by the award winning Shakespeare Distillery, finishing with a glass of Gin & Tonic to toast your captain & crew.

We are partnering with Avon Boating to offer Gin tasting cruises! They will take place at 6pm on selected weekend dates throughout the season. 2023 dates are now on-sale!

We will carry out a short talk on Gin whilst providing a tasting of 3 of our spirits, as the boat cruises upstream during the first half of the cruise. At the end of the tasting, guests will enjoy a Stratford Gin & Tonic (25ml single measure) whilst relaxing and enjoying the remainder of the cruise, passing under the bridge and downstream taking in the RSC and Holy Trinity Church, before returning to the Boathouse on Swan’s Nest Lane.
